SoundOut is excited to share reports written by students about schools. Focusing on their perspectives about schools, student-led and student-created reports can focus on every issue in education, including school climate, district budgets, teacher performance, and much more.
SoundOut does not believe that any one report can capture or share all student voice effectively. However, student-created reports on student voice can more authentically represent student perspectives than adult-created reports on student voice.
Following are some student-created reports on student voice. Do you have a report created by students we can share? Email it to firstname.lastname@example.org today!
